  1. Yeah it's a huge benefit for some bigger guys. Personally, I'm a little light at 175lb so I didn't notice a huge difference in rigidity since I wouldn't come down super hard on the Yellow to begin with, but I notice the material difference big time on starts and stops, turns, and the first couple quick steps in a stride, it's much more responsive.
  2. Sorry for the delay here! They are slightly thinner. We knew that some reviews of the Yellow suggested that they "take up too much space" so we wanted that to no longer be a concern. The arch support is similar, but the feeling under your foot is going to be different. The Yellow will give more, and be more flexible underneath a foot, which isn't always the best for bigger players. The stronger EVOlyte material (the carbon fiber) is going to hold the shape/support more, giving a much more powerful feeling when in stride. @the_game @OptimusReim @SlaterC42 @SolarWind @flyers10 These are not designed to be baked! The specific heel-to-toe profile is something that we brought over from the yellow, so baking them could compromise the material and the fit. I do not have Speedplate's exact thickness, so it's hard to say for sure. The Carbon Pro Hockey is more performance driven because of the materials we used. The feeling through the arch will be similar, but stronger due to plastic vs. carbon fiber. Each comes with a 60 Day Comfort Guarantee, so you've got two months to figure out which works better for you!
  3. Sorry for the delay in reponse, boys! Here's a link to purchasing direct from our site - though some of your normal stores may have them in stock already. https://www.superfeet.com/en-us/insoles-and-sandals/carbon-pro-hockey @OptimusReim - They are sized by shoe size, as we've found that's typically a more accurate read for players since skate sizes fluctuate quite a bit. @milos Yes, these are trim-to-fit as well. @brandonthequick These are a very different product, but the profile is pretty similiar to that of the Yellows. Should be an easy transition!
  4. Just as an FYI, these will feature our 60 Day Comfort Guarantee, just like the rest of our products.
  5. The best way I can describe it is more powerful, which sounds weird, but the stronger cap material allows for a more powerful response from the energy you put into it. It also feels a bit more "filling" if you will, and gives a little less of the "it's at the back of my arch" feeling even though we're still working to stabilize the rear section of the foot. I've skated on Yellow's since about 2010 and my transition to wearing this product was seamless!
  6. They have an extremely similar profile, but with different materials being used, the feeling is a bit different. It's not noticeably higher or lower, to my foot, but with a stronger cap, it feels different. See above! As a rep, I do not have exact measurements, but it does not feel thicker in my skates that I previously wore Yellow's in. It's also tapered along the outside edges of the foam used to give a more streamlined fit in the skate. SInce Bauer uses different stock insoles on different skates, it's hard to say for certain. With that said, let's use the "average stock insole" as the comparison. When you make sure to remove the original insole and replace with either these or the Yellow insole, the "loss of volume" is essentially the thickness of the cap. The forefoot is a wash since the foams are generally the same thickness. Also, on the caps, the small pillar's you see around the bottom are not the bottom most part of the cap - so those are not "jacking up the foot" the way some people may think they'll be. They're actually on there to help your foot move the few degrees that it needs to, without going too far. Compared to the Carbon: same EVOLyte cap material, but different cap shape (this is designed specifically for skates) and different profile!
  7. MSRP is $54.95. I would check with your local retailer to see if they'll be bringing them in. I also just fired off an email to one of our UK reps to confirm. I'll circle back with you when he responds! Is this on the Yellow model? If it's within 60 days, send it back - no questions asked. If it's after 60 days, I would call our Customer Care dept. at 800-634-6618 and let them know, I'm sure they'll take care of you. These should be lasting about a full "normal" season (aka all of us not skating 5+ times a week).
  8. Hey Guys, As some of you may know, I work as a rep for Superfeet. This post is not intended to be SPAM, but I wanted to let the loyal MSH community get a first look at the brand new hockey specific insole we're launching in May - CARBON PRO HOCKEY. Here are some of the features: Up to 11% better acceleration on the ice. The FlyBridge loads and channels energy and absorbs vibration. EVOLyte carbon fiber-reinforced stabilizer cap for weight-defying support Durable Aerolyte foam cushions the foot Heel-to-profile with angles midsole improves energy transfer to the ice The stabilizer cap and contoured foam provide the shape that supports the foot and arch. It's this distinct shape that increases stability, reduces shifting & minimizes hot spots. When reading through a lot of the posts associated with our products and/or foot "issues", pains, discomforts, etc. I noticed a lot of good terminology being tossed into the mix. Of this, I can let you know that some of the most common things our products help with include Plantar Faciitis, bone/heel spurs, bunions, calluses, and Haglund's deformity. These will be sized in the same lettering system that we currently use with Yellow and our other products. Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions on the thread or in messages!
  9. Before I begin, disclaimer: I work for Superfeet. With that said, I'm not trying to sell you a pair, just attempting to give you some more knowledge on the product. As you know already, the Speedplate is a full length moldable product, while the Yellow Superfeet are not moldable and are built on a 3/4 length cap supporting the rearfoot. The reason we do this is because if you can stabilize the heel in a skate, you can keep the rest of the foot in place. When it's not moving around, not only can you get a more powerful stride because a pronating foot shortens stride length, but you can also reduce the risk of stuff like blisters, cramping, bunions, Haglund's deformity, etc. Also, Superfeet are designed to be trimmed in the front and potentially on the sides of the toebox so that it can be compatible with your foot in your skate, regardless of what model you're tossing it into. If something like the Yellow is feeling too high under your foot, give the Carbon a shot - it's a model that's found success in hockey skates although it wasn't originally designed for them specifically, like the Yellow was. I won't speak to my experience on the Speedplate, as everyone's foot is different and will react differently to different products. If you're considering giving Superfeet a shot, just know that all the products have a 60 Day Comfort Guarantee, so if it doesn't meet your expectations in the first two months or less, take it back to the shop or give our offices a call. PHEW is Proclaimed Hockey Equipment Whores, a group similar to this on Facebook. Hope this helps! Feel free to DM me if you'd like. You wore Green's in MX3's?! Never heard of someone getting a pair of Green's into a skate. How did it work out?
  10. Here are some product differences if it helps you: - Superfeet have a 3/4 length stabilizer cap / Bauer's Speed Plate is full length plastic (or some type of polypropylene blend). - Superfeet Yellow are perforated towards the forefoot / Bauer's Speed Plate is not. - Superfeet are designed to be trimmed to fit into the skate and have room for movement inside the skate (you won't feel this when skating) / Bauer's Speed Plate doesn't require trimming. - Superfeet Yellow are $45 (USD) / Bauer's Speed Plate was apparently going to retail at $59 (USD). - Superfeet Yellow are designed to stabilize the heel and your midtarsal joint / Bauer's Speed Plate (under my foot at least) seems to "fill the arch" more.
  11. I work for Superfeet. Feel free to shoot me a DM with any questions about our products or your cousin's ailment. There currently isn't a model of Superfeet customs that are compatible with a skate. The idea behind the cap (yellow plastic piece) to help stabilize the heel because if you limit how much the heel moves, that keeps the arch in a neutral position.
